About online blackjack
Before we dive into our collection of online blackjack games, let's familiarise ourselves with what online blackjack is and how it works.
Online blackjack is very similar to blackjack in a real-life casino, and you'll find that the majority of online blackjack games follow the same rule set as land-based games. The objective is very much the same - obtain a hand which is closer to 21 than the dealer's, without going 'bust'. Busting is the term used to refer to a hand which exceeds 21, and if this happens, you lose the game. You'll be dealt two initial cards, whether these be virtual or real, and will then be given the option to hit, stand or double down. All of our online blackjack games are very user-friendly, with an easy-to-navigate game interface and clearly marked buttons. If you want to know more about a particular online blackjack game, then check out the game information page which will provide a good idea of what to expect.

We’re giving you some answers, so you can get the best out of your online casino experience.
What is the difference between live blackjack and a simulation?
Where live blackjack is played with a real dealer standing behind a real table, a simulation is essentially a piece of software that provides all of the same functionality without using an actual dealer or table. The rules are exactly the same.
Is blackjack always played against the house?
Yes. In some online blackjack games, there are multiple table positions allowing for multiple players simultaneously. However, players never compete against each other. Blackjack is always played exclusively against the house. However, this doesn’t mean you can have some healthy competition with your fellow players!
Is there a winning strategy I can employ?
Numerous blackjack ‘experts’ have come up with their own strategies for playing blackjack. It is fine to try any of the strategies you find intriguing, but no blackjack strategy can guarantee 100% success. We cover this in more detail in our blog.
How many decks are normally used in online blackjack?
The number of decks in an online casino varies from one to the next. On average, it tends to be around six. However, some casinos use eight while others use four. There is no way to know for sure.
Do online casinos shuffle after each hand?
Regularly shuffling the deck is something the online casino will often do to make it harder for players to count cards. Interestingly enough, statistics have shown that card counting is a fruitless strategy in online blackjack games.
What are the odds of winning a game of online blackjack?
The odds can vary from game to game, but in most instances a blackjack pays 3:2. If your hand exceeds the dealer’s (without going bust) then you’ll receive 1:1 odds. If you choose to place side bets, the odds will vary depending on which bet you place but will usually be higher than a standard blackjack bet.
Do the same rules apply in online blackjack games as in land-based casinos?
Online and live blackjack games will always follow the same set of basic rules that you’d play by in a land-based casino. Although some games may offer some extra features, the overall concept remains the same.
Blackjack: perfect pairs
